To go from having no bangs to having bangs is enough of a leap of its own, but to go to having micro bangs – i.e. the ultra short fringe – is a whole other level of daring again. Not only is it one of the less ventured-into spaces of 2012’s hair trends, it’s one that can easily be tied to associations of either the Bettie Page-esque or the edgy and alternative. But on Katharina Friedrich it’s clear that it doesn’t have to be either. It can be a mix of modern and classically-pretty, if only you want it to be.
If you do want to make this kind of leap just be confident that it will suit your face shape – and be prepared to give it the styling attention it deserves.
